Office of the Mayor.) 
City of Chicago.} 

A Proclamation 

In accordance with a custom of long standing, I 
am privileged as mayor of this city to designate 
Thursday, November 26, as thanksgiving day in 
Chicago. 

As citizens of this great metropolis, we have much 
for which to be thankful this year. We have seen 
a steady return to better times and the rapidly bright- 
ening outlook is providing genuine hope and courage 
for distressed people. There have been numerous 
other civic blessings during the year — blessings that 
have helped to Keep Chicago Ahead and further 
establish herself as one of the world's greatest cities. 

Our sincere thanks should, therefore, be offered to 
Almighty God for His guidance and blessings and His 
being with us on every step of the year's journey. 
It is my earnest hope that every Chicago citizen will 
observe Thanksgiving Day fittingly; also, that our 
more fortunate people will open their hearts and ex- 
tend the joys of the occasion by providing food and 
necessities for the needy families of our city to the 
end that Thanksgiving Day may Tse not only a day 
of spiritual rejoicing but one of material helpfulness 
as well. 

Signed this twentieth day of November, A. D., 1936.

Report Concerning Resolutions Adopted at the Annual

The City Clerk presented the following memorandum, 
which was ordered published and placed on file: 

The United States Conference of Mayors,] 
Washington, D. C, November 20, 1936.J 

Dear Sir — T attach herewith copy of all resolutions 
adopted at the Annual Conference of the United 
States Conference of Mayors just adjourned. 

Under separate cover copy of the addresses given 
by Harry L. Hopkins and Secretary Ickes have been 
forwarded. 



I am,

Faithfully yours, 

Paui, V. Betters, 
Executive Director. 



Continuation of Federal Work Program 

Whereas, it is apparent that the funds appropri- 
ated by tiie last Congress to carry forward the Fed- 
eral Work Program through the present fiscal year 
will be exhausted before June 30, 1937, and 

Whereas, the problem of providing relief consti- 
tutes one of the chief responsibilities of Government 
— Federal, state and municipal — and 

Whereas, it is urgent that the Federal Government 
fulfill the obligation which it has rightfully assumed 
in providing a work program for the "employable" 
relief persons, pending the time when the destitute 
unemployed will be absorbed by private enterprise, 
and 

Whereas, as the duly elected officials of the major 
cities of the nation, we again re-afTirm our position 
that work instead of the dole is the American way of 
meeting the relief needs, and 

Whereas, it is urgent that we maintain the pres- 
ent division of responsibility among the several levels 
of government by having the Federal Government re- 
sponsible for the employable relief group and the 
states and cities responsible for the unemployable 
group, 



Therefore Be Tt Resolved, that the United States 
Conference of Mayors express its appreciation and 
gratitude to the President of the United States and 
the Congress for their vision and courage in estab- 
lishing in an unprecedented manner the policy of 
Federal aid for destitute employable persons, and 

Be It Further Resolved, that the United Stales Con- 
ference of .Mayors petition Congress, immediately 
upon its convening, to provide adequate funds to 
carry the work program forward, on the basis of 
providing jobs to ail employable persons, for the 
duration of the present fiscal year, and 

Be It Further Resolved, that the President of this 
Conference and the Executive Committee be and are 
hereby authorized to cooperate wilh the Bureau of 
the Budget, the I'ederal WPA Administrator and with 
Congress and to appear before such committees of 
the House and Senate of the United States Congress 
that may be considering legislation and appropria- 
tions for relief purposes and present to them the 
needs of the cities and the estimates for further re- 
quirements and the need lor the continuance of the 
Government's policy of Federal aid for relief pur- 
poses, and 

Be It Further Resolved, that a copy of this resolu- 
tion be forwarded to the President of the United 
States, to the Vice-President of the United States, and 
the President pro tem of the Senate, Speaker of the 
House of Representatives, and that each mayor send 
to the representatives in Congress of the district in 
which cities are located a copy of this resolution. 



PWA 

Whereas, there are pending a number of proposed 
PWA projects and such projects are very desirable 
and are of permanent value to the sponsors, and 

Whereas, there still exists in a number of cities a 
serious and substantial load of unemployment, 

Therefore Be Tt Resolved that the United States 
Conference of Mayors recommend to the President 
and Congress of the United States that additional 
PWA funds be authorized to round out and complete 
the present program, and 

Be It Further Resolved that the United States Con- 
ference of Mayors recommend that the PWA be con- 
tinued as a permanent agency of the Federal 
Government with such powers and duties as may 
make it possible for the Federal Government, when 
economic conditions so demand, to be prepared to 
provide substantial stimulus to employment on Pub- 
lic Works throughout the country. 



Transient Relief 

Whereas, it is now recognized that the problem of 
transient relief cannot and should not be met by in- 
dividual cities or states and that transient relief is a 
peculiarly national problem, and 

Whereas, Congress up to the present time has not 
developed a program to meet the needs of the tran- 
sient unemployed, 

Therefore Be It Resolved that the United States 
Conference of Mayors again petition the President 
and the Congress to enact a Transient Relief Program 
in order that adequate provision be made for the 
handling of transient relief.

HOUSINQ 

Wlioroas, at the last session of the Congress the 
so-cnllod VVasiier Housing Hill was passed by the 
Senate but tailed to come to a vote in tlie House, and 

Wliereas, tlie principles embodied in the Wagner 
Bill I'cprcsent, in our judgment, tlie proper approach 
to nuM'ling the needs for public housing tor persons 
with low incomes, and 

Whereas, the situation with regard to the dire 
need lor additional housing of this type is even more 
acute in many cities than it was at the time of our 
last Annual Conference, 

Therefore Be It Resolved that we again petition 
the President and the Congress to enact, early in the 
next session, the Wagner Bill or legislation similar 
thereto in order that we, as cities, may meet our re- 
sponsibility for providing decent, cheap and health- 
ful houses for those unable to secure such housing 
where housing is needed, as well as enabling the 
cities to eliminate the slum areas, with all their dis- 
graceful conditions, where they exist. 



Federal Department op Public Welfare 

Whereas, the various programs of the Government 
in the field of public welfare, including relief, social 
security, the providing of employment through pub- 
lic works, the operation of public employment offices 
and other similar activities now constitute a major 
share of the Federal Government's work, and 

Whereas, the administration of these activities 
might well be consolidated in the interests of econ- 
omy and efficiency and particularly to the end that 
the cities of the country could then deal with one 
consolidated agency instead of a number of separate 
and individual agencies, 

Therefore Be It Resolved that the United States 
Conference of Mayors petition the President and the 
Congress to give consideration to the consolidation 
of all present welfare activities of the Government 
into a Department of Public Welfare. 



Collusion and City Purchasing 

Whereas, a number of cities have reported to the 
United States Conference of Mayors that manufac- 
turers and dealers in certain equipment and supplies 
commonly purchased by all cities, are submitting 
identical bids on municipal requirements of such 
supplies and equipment, and 

Whereas, it appears that collusion exists between 
certain manufacturers and dealers in maintaining a 
uniform price, the result being that there is little or 
no competition on public purchases of such supplies 
and equipment, and 

Whereas, individual manufacturers certainly have 
varying costs of production and the quoting of iden- 
tical prices to cities can only be attributed to collu- 
sive practices, and 

Whereas, cities must purchase under established 
legal conditions which prevent bargaining for fair 
prices under those procedures followed in private 
business, and 

Whereas, under the circumstances it is apparent 
that the only agency having legal authority to inves- 
tigate this situation and to order such manufacturers 



and dealers who may have entered info collusion to 
cease and desist fium such practices is the Federal 
Trade Commission, 

Therefore Be It Resolved, that the United States 
Conlei'ence of Mayors petition th(! F(!d(!i-al Trade 
Commission to scd up a separate unit in its organi- 
zation to deal specifically with instances of the char- 
acter above numtioned which occur in public 
purchasing throughout the country, to the end that 
prom[)t and (iircctivc action may be taken by the 
Commission to protect the taxpayers of cities in this 
matter. 



Natural Gas 

Resolved that a committee of five members, com- 
prised of municipal officials interested and experi- 
enced in the problem of providing natural gas 
service for cities and in the operations ol the natural 
gas industry, be appointed by the President of the 
United States Conference of Mayors, such committee 
to be charged Vk'ith the duty of working with and co- 
operating with the proper Federal agencies in all 
problems concerning the general subject of securing 
of natural gas service under reasonable rates. 



Municipal Finance 

Whereas, municipal finance constitutes one of the 
major problems of municipal governmental opera- 
tions, 

Therefore Be It Resolved that the United States 
Conference of Mayors request the Federal Govern- 
ment to institute a survey of this whole problem to 
the end that recommendations may be formulated 
for future consideration, and 

Be It Further Resolved that the Conference of May- 
ors pledges its cooperation in the study herein re- 
quested. 



Claims 

Whereas, the United States Conference of Mayors 
believes that some cities have been unfairly discrim- 
inated against as compared to the treatment accorded 
to states by the Federal Government in the way of 
past claims, 

Therefore Be It Resolved, that the Executive Com- 
mittee be directed to aid any cities in every way 
possible to bring about an equitable adjustment of 
any such inequalities as may exist. 



Personnel Study 

Whereas, various functions in municipal govern- 
ment require trained technicians with actual expe- 
rience, and 

Whereas, the field for obtaining such experience is 
naturally limited to departments of cities, and 

Whereas, key positions for heads of departments 
having such specialized field of activity are limited, 
and when a vacancy occurs it becomes difficult to 
quickly obtain qualified persons. 

Therefore Be It Resolved, that the President and 
the Executive Board be and are hereby authorized 
to prepare a plan for assembling data on the train- 
ing and qualifications necessary for technical and 



2568

December 2, 1936 



specialized officials of city government and provide 
ways and means for qualifying applicants and com- 
piling a list of available qualified persons from which 
municipalities might select suitable persons when 
desired. 

Labor 

Whereas, experience has indicated that the inter- 
ruption or suspension of established means of trans- 
portation creates general hardship, suffering and 
great loss to the public, operators and employees, and 

Whereas, the Railway Labor Act has served to pre- 
vent the interruption of railroad transportation and 
at the same time has protected the rights of the em- 
ployees and the interests of the railroads by pro- 
viding the machinery for the settlement of disputes, 
and 

Whereas, since the enactment of the Railway La- 
bor Act there has been no interruption of railroad 
transportation while the rights and interests of all 
concerned have been fully protected, 

Therefore Be It Resolved, that the said Act be ex- 
tended, or legislation similar thereto be enacted to 
embrace all means of transportation engaged in in- 
terstate or foreign commerce, carrying freight, pas- 
sengers or mail in order to prevent the interruption 
of service and at the same time to protect the inter- 
ests of all concerned. 



Your Nominating Committee wishes to make the 
following report: 

During the past year, more progress has been 
made by the United States Conference of Mayors than 
in any preceding period. The fine record of service 
rendered to the cities of the Nation is a tribute to 
the unselfish and devoted work of the members of 
the Executive Committee and the President and Vice 
President of the organization. 

We are of the unanimous opinion that the record 
of 1935, plus the fact that next year the organization 
will be faced with the development and formulation 
of continuing Federal Relief and other policies — that 
it is sound to retain the existing officers of the Con- 
ference for the coming year. This will enable us 
to take advantage of the experience of the present 
Board and insure a continuity of activities and serv- 
ices along the lines charted in the past. 

We, therefore, unanimously nominate : 

For President: Mayor LaGuardia of New York. 

For Vice President: Mayor Kelly of Chicago. 

For Trustees : Mayor Rossi of San Francisco, Mayor 

Miller of Louisville, Mayor Mansfield of Boston. 

For the one vacancy on the Board : Mayor Rogers 
of Amarillo. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mayor Overton of Memphis 
Mayor Burton of Cleveland 
Mayor Ellenstein of Newark 
Mayor Hoan of Milwaukee 
Mayor Rogers of Amarillo

Departmental and Comptroller's Estimates for the Year

The City Clerk presented the following communica-

to the Committee on Finance: 



Office of the City Comptroller,] 
Chicago, November 30, 1936.5 



To the Honorable Mayor and City Council of the City 
of Chicago. 

Gentlemen — The Comptroller respectfully submits 
herewith estimates of the moneys necessary to de- 
fray the expenses of the corporation for the year 
1937, and the resources available for appropriations 
for the year 1937 for the Corporate Purposes Fund, 
Water Works Fund and the Vehicle Tax Fund. 

Estimated resources are not sufficient to meet all 
the departmental estimates of requirements submit- 
ted herewith, making it necessary for the Comptroller 
to estimate the amount of money necessary to be 
appropriated for activities which are, in his opinion, 
indispensable although it is apparent that there is 
need for additional appropriations for services which 
are essential. Because of the lack of revenue, con- 
sideration of such further appropriations must nec- 
essarily be deferred at this time.

In the District Court of the United States, for the 
Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division. 

On August 7, 1936, we sent to your honorable body 
a copy of the Statement we had filed on behalf of 
the City on August 6, 1936, at the direction of Mayor 
Edward J. Kelly pointing out the failure of the Abbott 
Plan to provide adequately for obtaining the new 
capital necessary for the construction of additions 
to and extensions of the existing street railway lines 
and for the acquisition of other properties and the 
request of the City that no plan be approved by the 
court that will not harmonize with the making of a 
modern comprehensive local transportation franchise. 

Our letter and the Statement to Judge James H. 
Wilkerson therein referred to appear at pages 2188 
et seq. of the council journal. 

On November 21, 1936, Judge Wilkerson handed 
down his opinion on the Abbott Plan, the objections 
thereto by the several objectors and the above state- 
ment and request of the City of Chicago. 



The opinion states in reference to the City's state- 
ment: (page 6) 



"The City made objection to certain provisions 
of the plan and pointed out that, in its opinion, it 
would be impossible for the new company, in view 
of its financial structure under the plan, to provide 
the extensions and improvements necessary to the 
adequate performance by the new company of its 
duty as a public utility. The statement concluded 
with the request that the Court 'dolor action on 
the proposed reorganization of the companies until 
the requirements for additional local transporta- 
tion facilities in the City of Chicago are more defi- 
nitely known, and until the amount of new capital 
which will be needed to modernize the traction 
properties has been definitely determined'." 

The court in its opinion then overruled the objec- 
tions to the report of sale and to the Abbott Plan but 
stated that "the approval, however, is tentative and 
interlocutory and not final". 



December 2, 1936

The opinion (lion conchidos as follows: (page 9) 

"Tlic plan provides I'or llie Lranst'ei" of title to 
the properties olVercd at the inasler's sale to a 
new company. That company niust obtain troin the 
Illinois Commerce Commission authorization to 
issue the securities required to carry out the plan. 
The Court is not inclined, liowever, without further 
consideration and without further showing of the 
necessity for so doing, to api)rove an exchange of 
the issues of stocks and bonds of the old companies 
for those of a company to which the City has re- 
fused a new grant. Such a grant should be ob- 
tained, if it is possible to do so, on terms which are 
not confiscatory and which are fair to both the 
public and these utilities. The Court withholds 
judgment upon the consummation of a plan under 
which the new company has no rights in the streets 
save those which arise from Section 23 of the ordi- 
nance of 1907. 

The City, which is a party to these proceedings, 
requests the Court to defer final action on the plan 
until the terms of the new ordinance have been 
considered. The Court is of the opinion that this 
request should be granted and that final action on 
the plan should be postponed for a reasonable time 
in order that its proponents may apply for an 
ordinance and the terms upon which it will be 
granted may be ascertained. 

The proponents of the plan should make prompt 
application for a new ordinance. The receivers and 
their attorneys should co-operate in trying to ob- 
tain a settlement and in bringing this receivership 
to an end. If an ordinance is obtained without 
material modification of the plan, application may 
be made for a final order of confirmation. If it is 
found that the plan should be modified, that fact 
should be reported to the Court and the proposed 
amendments presented. If a new grant cannot be 
obtained, that fact should be reported and applica- 
tion may then be made for the approval of the 
plan on the basis of the rights under the 1907 
ordinance. 

The proponents of the plan should file a report 
with recommendations on or before January 25, 
1937, and the cause will be continued for further 
hearing on that report on February 1, 1937." 

It will be seen, therefore, that the court has de- 
ferred final action on the plan until the terms of a 
new ordinance have been considered; has directed the 
proponents of the Abbott Plan to make prompt appli- 
cation for a new ordinance; has directed the receivers 
and their attorneys to co-operate in frying to obtain 
a settlement and has directed the proponents of the 
plan to file a report with recommendations on or 
before January 25, 1937, and the cause was continued 
for further hearing on that report to February 1, 
1937. 

We transmit herewith a copy of Judge Wilkerson's 
opinion and respectfully suggest that it be printed 
in the Journal of the Proceedings of the City Council. 

Respectfully submitted,

Opinion. 



Wilkerson, District Judge: 

Decrees of foreclosure and sale were entered in 
the above causes on May 11, 1931. 

The decrees provided that those desiring to bid 
for the property should file with the special master 
a statement as to whether or not tiic bid was on 
behalf of a corporation organized with the intention 
that it should acquire the property pursuant to a 
plan of reorganization, and that if tiie pi'Operty was 
to be so acquired a copy of the plan should be filed 
with the special master. 

The decrees further provided that the special mas- 
ter should report to the Court the bids received at 
the sale, and any reorganization plan submitted in 
connection therewith, and that at the iiearing on the 
master's report the Court should hear complaints 
from parties in interest as to the equity of the plan, 
and that no sale pursuant to a reorganization plan 
should be confirmed if the Court should determine 
that the plan is inequitable and does not contain an 
equitable and timely oiTer of parlicipation in the 
reorganization thereby proposed to all persons en- 
titled thereto. 

This Court, by order of April II, 1936, fixed May 
29, 1936, for the date of the sale. On June 19, 1936, 
the special master filed his report showing that the 
only bids received by him were a bid of $19,000,000 
for the property of the Chicago Railways Company, 
a bid of $11,000,000 for the property of the Chicago 
City Railway Company, and a bid of $1,700,000 for 
the property of Chicago City and Connecting Rail- 
ways Collateral Trust. The bids were submitted by 
M. H. MacLean and Frank M. Gordon, as joint tenants 
and not as tenants in common. There was submitted 
in connection with the bids a plan for the reorganiza- 
tion and unification of Chicago Railways Company, 
Chicago City Railway Company, Calumet and South 
Chicago Railway Company, the Southern Street Rail- 
way Company and Chicago Western Railway Com- 
pany. The plan provides for the organization of a 
new company to be known as Chicago Surface Lines, 
Inc., and for the exchange of bonds and stock of the 
new company for bonds and stock of the old com- 
panies on the basis stated in the plan. The plan is 
clearly and concisely drafted, and no attempt will be 
made to summarize it here. Such an attempt might 
involve inaccuracy in order to obtain brevity. The 
plan states the facts relative to the committees which 



2572

participated in framing it, tiie capitalization of ttie 
existing companies, the organization of the new com- 
pany, the distribution of the securities of the new 
company, and the method of participation in the plan. 
The plan comes before the Court with the support of 
a very large majority of the bondholders of the old 
companies. More than two-thirds of each group of 
bondholders have approved the plan and out of a 
total bonded indebtedness of $152,900,296.66 bonds to 
the amount of $130,451,800.00', or 85.31%, have been 
deposited with the committees supporting the plan.* 

The stockholders of the Chicago Railways Company 
do not support the plan. Of the 8,999 shares of so- 
called minority stock of the Chicago Ciiy Railway 
Company 64.56% of the stockholders favor the plan 
and 79.8% of the 250,000 shares of the Chicago City 
and Connecting Railways Collateral Trust Preferred 
Participation Shares favor the plan. 

Objections have been filed by the holders of bonds 
in the following amounts par value : Chicago Railways 
Company Firsts $47,000', Chicago Railways Company 
A's $677,000, Chicago Railways Company B's $199,- 
000, Chicago Railways Company Adjustments $25,000'. 
Chicago City Railway Company Firsts $46,000', Chi- 
cago City and Connecting 5's $67,000. Objections 
were also filed on behalf of Fred Bright, et ai., hold- 
ing all kinds of securities of both north and south 
side lines having a par value of $2,300,000. The 
Bright objections go to the points that income bonds 
should be used in place of preferred stock of the 
new company, that there should be a variable rather 
than a cumulative sinking fund, that the interest 
rate on the first mortgage bonds of the new company 
should be less than five per cent, and that the voting 
trust provisions should be eliminated. In the brief 
filed in support of the Bright objections it is stated 
that this group is in accord with the general tenor 
of the plan and feel that a reorganization is so urgent 
that only constructive criticism and recommendations 
should be given in objecting to the plan. There are 
other objections by the depositaries of the stock of 
the Chicago Railways Company, a committee of hold- 
ers of series 1 certificates of Chicago Railways Com- 
pany, a committee of holders of series 2 certificates 
of Chicago Railways Company, the Chicago Title and 
Trust Company, as trustee of Chicago City and Con- 
necting Collateral Trust, and committees of bond- 
holders and shareholders under that trust. 



The objections must be considered in the light of 
the history of this litigation, and of the practical 
situation which confronts both the litigants and the 
Court. This proceeding has reached the stage at 
which some method must be devised by which these 
receiverships will be brought to a close. Almost ten 
years ago a creditor's bill was brought against the 
Chicago Railways Company and receivers were ap- 
pointed. On February 2, 1927, a foreclosure suit was 
commenced against that company and the receiver- 
ship extended. The franchises under which the con- 
stituent companies of the Chicago Surface Lines were 
operated expired on February 1, 1927, and have been 
extended from time to time since that date. When 
application was made to the City for a new ordinance 
the companies were informed by the City that such 
an ordinance must embrace in one system the prop- 
erties not only of the street car companies but also 
those of the company operating the elevated roads. 
To accomplish this it was necessary that amendatory 
legislation should be enacted. On December 6, 1928, 
the Court named a committee, of which James Simp- 
son was chairman, to co-operate with the City and 
the companies in drafting a new traction ordinance 
and enabling legislation. The City Council passed a 
resolution endorsing the action of the Court. 

The necessary enabling legislation was passed and 
the City Council of Chicago passed the 1930 ordinance 
authorizing the Chicago Local Transportation Com- 
pany, as grantee, to acquire and operate the proper- 
ties of the street car and elevated companies. The 
ordinance was submitted to referendum and adopted 
by a vote of six to one. In July, 1930, the properties 
of the south side lines were brought into receivership 
in this court in foreclosure suits. A reorganization 
plan was worked out on the basis of the 1930 ordi- 
nance and was declared operative on April 1, 1931. 
That plan was submitted to security holders and 
approved by a great majority. There was litigation 
involving the validity of the enabling legislation and 
the 1930 ordinance. In July, 1932, the Supreme 
Court of Illinois upheld the validity of the legisla- 
tion and the ordinance. In the meantime receivers 
had been appointed for the Chicago Rapid Transit 
Company, and the financial situation resulting from 
the panic of 1929 made it impossible to carry out 
the 1931 reorganization plan. The Court then ap- 
pointed the late Walter L. Fisher special counsel for 
the purpose of bringing the parties together in an 
agreement upon an amended plan. This task was a

difficult one, and on March 21, 1934, Mr. Fisher re- 
ported to the Court that the committees representing 
the various gi^oups of security holders had agreed 
upon amendments to the plan. On the same date the 
Mayor of the City of Chicago recommended to the City 
Council that it should not extend the time within 
which the Chicago Local Transportation Company 
could accept the 1930 ordinance. The City Council 
did not extend the time of acceptance. The 1930' ordi- 
nance, therefore, lapsed and the plan of reorganiza- 
tion under it failed. 

The representatives of the surface lines committees 
then stated to the Court that the City would not con- 
sider further applications for a new ordinance until 
the street car companies were reorganized, the receiv- 
ership terminated and the properties turned over to a 
new company. Thereupon the Court appointed W. 
Rufus Abbott, M. H. MacLean, Frank M. Gordon, Ber- 
nard E. Sunny and John E. Blount as a committee 
to prepare a plan for the reorganization and unifica- 
tion of the surface lines. The plan was completed 
and presented to the Court on October 31, 1935. Pur- 
suant to orders of Court it was submitted to all 
holders of the securities of the street car company. 
The plan met with the approval of a great majority 
of the security holders. The bondholders' committees 
gave flnal approval to the plan and the Court, on 
April 11, 1936, entered the orders fixing the date of 
sale under the decrees of May 11, 1931. 

The special master filed his report on June 19, 
1936, and the Court heard objections to the report and 
the plan during July, 1936. x-Vt the conclusion of the 
hearing on the plan, the defendant, the City of Chi- 
cago, asked and was given leave to file within fifteen 
days a statement. That statement was filed. In the 
statement the City disclaimed any interest in the 
distribution of the securities to be issued by the new 
company. The City made objection to certain pro- 
visions of the plan and pointed out that, in its opinion, 
it would be impossible for the new company, in view 
of its financial structure under the plan, to provide 
the extensions and improvements necessary to the 
adequate performance by the new company of its 
duty as a public utility. The statement concluded 
with the request that the Court "defer action on the 
proposed reorganization of the companies until the 
requirements for additional local transportation fa- 
cilities in the City of Chicago are more definitely 
known, and until the amount of new capital which 
will be needed to modernize the traction properties 
has been definitely determined." It will be seen, 
therefore, that the representatives of the security 
holders misunderstood the position of the City when 
application was made for the reorganization of the 
properties independently of the application for a 
new ordinance. 

Briefs have been filed by the proponents of the 
plan and the objectors, and the proponents of the 
plan have filed suggestions relative to the City's 
statement. 

Objections based upon the alleged inadequacy of 
the bids cannot be sustained. Practically, it is im- 
possible to sell the property of a large public utility 
like this for cash. The interests of all parties, includ- 
ing the public, are best served by co-operation be- 
tween security holders. These bids were made as a 
step in reorganization. They must be considered in 
the light of a plan which is supported by 85% of the 
security holders [Kansas City Raibvay Co. v. Central 
Union Trust Co., 21 i U. S. 445, 455; Warner Bros. 
Pictures v. Laivton-Byrne-Bruner Ins. A. Co. 79 F. (2) 
804, 811, 817; Thomas v. Central Hanover Bank, 75 F. 
(2) 227; Temmer v. Denver Tramway Co., 18 F. (2) 



226, 228) . The first mortgage indebtedness on these 
properties is more than $72,000,000. Holders of first 
mortgage bonds in the amount of less than $100,000 
have objected to the plan on this ground. It would 
require a bid in excess of $72,000,000 for both prop- 
erties to produce anything for distribution among 
junior security holders. The assertion that the 
amount of the bid will have some effect upon the 
negotiations for a franchise imputes to those with 
whom the companies will have to deal in obtaining 
a new ordinance ignorance of the elementary prin- 
ciples of rate making for public utilities. The bid 
at a sale in connection with reorganization is no more 
a test of value for franchise or rate making purposes 
than is the assessed value placed on the property 
for levying taxes. 

Some of the objections are aimed at the structure 
of the new company and the provisions of the voting 
trust agreement. It is urged that income bonds 
should be issued instead of preferred stock; that the 
sinking fund should be variable and not cumulative; 
that the interest on the first mortgage bonds is too 
high, and that the voting trust agreement should be 
eliminated or radically modified. The Court should 
not undertake to set aside the business judgment of 
a large majority of the security holders because of 
some notion of its own, unless it is clear that the 
provisions relating to the new company are inequit- 
able and unfair. It cannot be said with certainty that 
the amendments proposed by a small minority will 
work out in practice any better than the provisions 
approved by the large majority. The Court does not 
possess dictatorial power in this respect, and should 
not reject the proposals of large majorities merely 
because of views which it might entertain on financial 
or economic questions or because of a prophecy which 
it might be inclined to make as to the trend of busi- 
ness. 

There are some matters relating to the voting trust 
agreement which may require further consideration 
when the negotiations for a new franchise are com- 
pleted. These will receive further consideration 
when all of the facts relating to the conditions under 
which the new company will operate are definitely 
before the court. 

The objections to the distribution of securities of 
the new company are best answered by the substan- 
tial unanimity of both junior and senior security 
holders in support of the plan. It would require 
more than has been shown here, or even suggested, 
to overcome the verdict of the bondholders themselves 
that all classes have been treated fairly. The dis- 
tribution of securities proposed under the plan does 
not violate the principles stated in Northern Pacific 
Ry. V. Boyd, 228 U. S. 482 (Kansas City Railway Co. v. 
Central Union Trust Co. of New York, 271 U. S. 445; 
Jameson v. Guaranty Trust Co. of New York, 20 F. (2) 
808). 

The objections of the depositaries of the stock of 
the Chicago Railways Company and of the certificate 
holders of that company must be disposed of in ac- 
cordance with the adjudication of their rights in the 
state and federal courts (Babcock v. Chicago Railways 
Co., 325 111. 16, 236 111. App. 360: Harris Trust & Sav- 
ings Bank v. Chicago Railways Co., et al. 56 F. (2) 
942; City of Chicago v. Harris Trust & Savings Bank, 
40 F. (2) 612; Harris Trust & Savings Bank v. Chicago 
Railioays Co., et al., 39 F. (2) 958; In re Babcock, 26 
F. (2) 153, 278 U. S. 615; Harris Trust & Savings Bank 
V. Chicago Railways Co., et al. 23 F. (2) 192; Thatcher 
v. Chicago Raihmys Co., 4 F. (2) 63. 297 F. 466). 

Considering the financial condition and earnings of 
the Chicago Railways Company and the probable 



2574 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 2, 1936 



earnings of the new company, it cannot be said that 
the owners of the stock of the Chicago Railways 
Company have been dealt with unlairly under the 
plan. II must be remembered that there is a decree 
of foreclosure in this case; that the bondholders are 
entitled to have that decree executed sometime, and 
that a secured indebtedness in tiie amount of $95,- 
000,000 stands ahead of any right of the certificate 
holders to participate in the proceeds of the sale. 

Nor have the share holders in Chicago City and 
Connecting Railways Trust been treated unfairly. 
There is a secured indebtedness of more than $58,- 
000,000 ahead of those shareholders. The secured 
creditors are entitled to protection of the rights 
established by the decrees of foreclosure. 

The objections to the report of sale and to the plan 
will be overruled. The approval, however, is tenta- 
tive and interlocutory and not final. 

The plan provides lor the transfer of title to the 
properties otTered at the master's sale to a new com- 
pany. That company must obtain from the Illinois 
Commerce Commission authorization to issue the 
securities required to carry out the plan. The Court 
is not inclined, however, without further considera- 
tion and without further showing of the necessity 
for so doing, to approve an exchange of the issues 
of stocks and bonds of the old companies for those of 
a company to which the City has refused a new grant. 
Such a grant should be obtained, if it is possible to 
do so on terms which are not confiscatory and which 
are fair to both the public and these utilities. The 
Court withholds judgment upon the consummation 
of a plan under which the new company has no rights 
in the streets save those which arise from section 
23 of the ordinance of 1907. 

The City, which is a party to these proceedings, 
requests the Court to defer final action on the plan 
until the terms of the new ordinance have been con- 
sidered. The Court is of the opinion that this re- 
quest should be granted and that final action on the 
plan should be postponed for a reasonable time in 
order that its proponents may apply for an ordinance 
and the terms upon which it will be granted may be 
ascertained. 

The proponents of the plan should make prompt 
application for a new ordinance. The receivers and 
their attorneys should co-operate in trying to obtain 
a settlement and in bringing this receivership to an 
end. If an ordinance is obtained without material 
modification of the plan, application may be made 
for a fmal order of confirmation. If it is found that 
the plan should be modified, that fact should be 
reported to the Court and the proposed amendments 
presented. If a new grant cannot be obtained, that 
fact should be reported and application may then be 
made for I he approval of the plan on the basis of the 
rights under the 1907 ordinance. 



In the Matter of the Licensing and Regulating of Insur- 
ance Brokers. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which was, 
together with the ordinance transmitted therewith, re.- 
f erred to the Committee on License: 

Department op Law,) 
Chicago, December 1, 1936.) 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — We are transmitting herewith an 
ordinance relating to insurance brokers' licenses. The 
reason for this ordinance is that on August 26, 1933 
a permanent injunction was entered by Charles A. 
Williams, one of the judges of the Superior Court, 
restraining the City of Chicago from enforcing Sec- 
tions 3329 to 3333 of the Revised Chicago Code of 
1931 known as the Insurance Brokers' Licensing 
Ordinance. 

The decree was entered on the theory that the 
passage by the legislature of paragraphs 585 to 603 
inclusive of chapter 73 of Cahill's Illinois Revised 
Statutes of 1931 entitled "An Act providing [or the 
qualification and license of Insurance Brokers and 
Solicitors; to prohibit payment of brokernqe to any 
unlicensed person and providing penalties for viola- 
tion" caused sections 3329 to 3333 of the Revised 
Chicago Code of 1931 to become inoperative and 
invalid. 

The Supreme Court of Illinois held the act of the 
legislature to be void. Chicagoland Agencies Inc., v. 
Palmer, 364 Illinois, 13. Consequently the decree of 
the Superior Court of Cook County based on the 
premise that the legislative act was constitutional is 
erroneous. The legislature of Illinois passed another 
act licensing and regulating insurance brokers and 
providing that nothing in the said act shall afi"ect the 
power of the Cities and Villages to tax, license and 
regulate insurance brokers. (Jan. 21, 1936, Laws 
1935-36 First Sp. Sess., p. 76, sec. 26.)

subject: lakes-to-gulf waterway. 

The Honorable Mayor and City Council: 

Gentlemen — There is transmitted herewith copies 
in duplicate of an ordinance aulhorizing the Com- 
missioner of Public Works to secure an Easement 
over private property in favor of the United States 
of America, for right-of-way purposes required in 
conjunction with the development of the Lakes-to- 
Gulf Waterway, 

The waterway is now under construction by the 
Federal Government, and this Easement is required 
immediately. 

Although condemnation proceedings have been filed 
covering this property together with other lands, it 
is my opinion that the consideration set up in the 
accompanying ordinance for the specific land de- 
scribed is very favorable to the City, and that this 
Easement should be secured without delay. 

You are therefore requested to pass the accompany- 
ing ordinance at the next regular meeting of the City 
Council. 

Yours very truly.

Whereas, the decision of I he Commissioner of 
Buildings rendered October 13, 1936 reads: 

'Application not approved. Proposed improve- 
ment does not conform with requirements of

and 

Whereas, the proposed improvement is to be 
located in a 3d volume, manufacturing district 
noai-er than 500 feet to a commercial district and 
2,000 feet to an apartmont district and would vio- 
late the strict letter of the zoning ordinance; and

cation by the board of appeals at its regular meet- 
ing held on November 9, 1936, after due public

Whereas, the decision of the Commissioner of 
Buildings rendered August 12, 1936 reads:

ment does not conform with requirements of

and 

Whereas, the proposed use is to be located in a

ter of the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, a public hearing was held on this ap- 
plication by the board of appeals at its regular

ing fully advised in the premises, finds that the 
proposed use will be so conducted that clearly the 
appropriate use of neighboring property will not 
be injured thereby, and that the applicant should 
be granted relief on the ground of particular hard- 
ship in the way of carrying out the strict letter of

necessary for the establishment of the proposed 
use shall be obtained within three months after the 
passage of an ordinance by the City Council; and

Chicago, November 16, 1936. | 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I am submitting herewith an ordi- 
nance amending Section 206 1-D, Chapter 39 of the 
Revised Chicago Code of 1931, providing for a change 
in inspection periods under the ordinance governing 
the mandatory inspection of motor vehicles owned 
and operated by residents of the City of Chicago. 

This proposed change is desired in order that 
motorists may have sufficient time in which to pro- 
cure their City and State vehicle licenses before 
presenting their cars at the lanes for the first inspec- 
tion, which under the present ordinance begins on 
January 1st. This change would also expedite the 
issuance of licenses by the City Collector and the 
Secretary of State. 

By changing these periods to begin April 1st and' 
October 1st instead of January 1st and July 1st, it 
places the three coldest and most disagreeable months 
of the year in the last half of a period instead of the 
first half, which permits motorists to have their 
vehicles inspected in that period before the advent, 
of extremely cold weather. 



Respectfully submitted,

BOARD OF EDUCATION. 



Authorization for the Issuance and Sale of Refunding 

Bonds of 1937 of the Board of Education of the 

City of Chicago ($3,000,000.00). 

The City Clerk presented the following certified copy 
of a resolution adopted on December 2, 1936, by the 
Board of Education of the City of Chicago, consideration 
of which was temporarily deferred: 

Resolution providing for the issue and sale of $3,000,- 
000 Refunding Bonds of 1937, of the Board of Edu- 
cation of I he City of Chicago, being a School District 
in Cook County, Illinois. 

Whereas, the Board of Education of the City of 
Chicago heretofore issued and sold in conformity 
with law its interest bearing bonds, of which 
$5,000,000 in principal and $100,000 interest will be- 
come due January 1, 1937, and interest upon said 
bonds has always been paid as it became due, and 
on account of the delay in fixing the valuation of 
taxable property in and for Cook County and the 
economic distress prevailing, the extension of taxes 
for collection and payment thereof has been unduly 
delayed so that money will be available to pay such 
interest but not sufUcient lor the payment of the 
principal of all of said bonds on January 1, 1937, 
although at the time said bonds were authorized pro- 
vision was made for the levy and collection of suffi- 
cient taxes to meet such payment; and 

Whereas, the extension for collection of the taxes 
so provided for the payment of said bonds at their 
maturity on January 1, 1937, has been included in 
the general extension of all taxes for the calendar 
year 1935, and under existing statutes, the first in- 
stallment of said 1935 taxes became delinquent Sep- 
'■ fember 1, 1936, and the second installment thereof 
will become delinquent February 1, 1937, and up to 
December 1, 1936, said bond and interest taxes have 
been collected and received by the Board of Educa- 
tion of the City of Chicago in the amount of $2 100,000, 
so that under no circumstances will money, the pro- 
ceeds of said taxes, be available on January 1, 1937, 
sufficient to pay the principal of all of said bonds; and 

Whereas, said bonds were authorized for proper 
school purposes and sold and the proceeds received 
by the Board of Education of the City of Chicago and 
said bonds now constitute outstanding legal indebted- 
ness of said Board of Education and there will be 
available money to pay the interest coupons upon 
said bonds that become due on January 1, 1937, and 
$2,000 000 to pay principal of snid bonds, thus leav- 
ing $3 000.000 principal of said bonds unprovided for, 
and in nnlor to take care of said principal amount 
of $3,000,000 due on that day. and (o preserve the 
credit of the Board of Education of the City of Chi- 
cago by providing that such maturing bonds may be 
paid from the proceeds of the sale of bonds author- 
ized and issued to refund the same, it is necessary that 
the Board of Education of the City of Chicago author- 
ize, issue and sell its refunding bonds lo supply means 
to meet said maturing bonds on January 1, 1937, which 
can be done to the advantage of the Board of Educa- 
tion of the Citv of Chicago because of Ihe prevailing 
favorable conditions of the bond and money markets 
throughout the country and in a manner that will not 
increase Ihe indohtedness of said Board of Education 
of the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, under "An Act to authorize the board of 
education of any school district constituted by law 
in any city having a population excending five hun- 
dred thousand inhabitants to issue refunding bonds", 



in force February 28, 1934, and other statutes, refund- 
ing bonds may be issued and sold to refund said bonds 
and the proceeds used to pay the principal thereof 
when presented for payment and at this time such 
refunding bonds can be sold bearing a less interest 
rate than borne by the old bonds and, unless such 
refunding is presently provided for, the credit stand- 
ing of the Board of Education of the City of Chicago 
will be placed in jeopardy. 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved by the Board of 
Education of the City oi Chicago, being a School Dis- 
trict in Cook County, Illinois, as follows: 

Section 1. For the purpose of refunding the prin- 
cipal of bonds of the Board of Education of the City

In the event proceeds of taxes hereby provided to 
be levied are not available in time to meet any pay- 
ments of principal of and interest upon said refund- 
ing bonds, the fiscal officers of the Board of Educa- 
tion of the City of Chicago are hereby directed to 
make such payments from any funds of said School 
District that may be temporarily so used and when 
the proceeds of such taxes are received such funds 
shall be reimbursed all to the purpose that the credit 
of said School District may be preserved. 

After the adoption of such ordinance levying said 
taxes, the City Clerk of the City of Chicago is hereby 
directed to file a copy thereof duly certified by him 
in the office of the County Clerk of Cook County, 
Illinois, whereupon it shall be the duty of such 
County Clerk to extend the taxes in said ordinance 
provided for. 

Section 5. Taxes for payment of the bonds hereby 
refunded and other bonds due January 1, 1937, were 
included in the extension of taxes for the year 1935, 
as provided in the ordinances authorizing such bonds 
as required by the Constitution of the State of Illi- 
nois, and the proceeds of such taxes received prior 
to January 1, 1937, will be used to pay the interest 
on said bonds due January 1, 1937, and the balance 
of such tax proceeds will be used to pay the principal 
of said bonds due January 1. 1937, thereby reducing 
the principal amount of bonds to be refunded. 

Taxes levied by this ordinance for the year 1936 
will not be extended for collection until some time 
prior to August 1, 1937, and before the time such 1936 
taxes are so extended for collection, there will have 
been collected and received by the City Treasurer — 
ex-offlcio School Treasurer- — additional proceeds of 
the 1935 bond taxes and the money so received 
from said 1935 bond taxes that is applicable to the 
payment of bonds hereby refunded shall be placed in 
the Sinking Fund created by this ordinance and used 
to pay the interest upon and principal of these re- 
funding bonds and the levy made by this ordinance 
for the year 1936 prior to extension thereof shall be 
reduced and abated in that amount. Such taxes shall 
be reduced and abated by the County Clerk of Cook 
County upon receipt of a certified copy of a resolu- 
tion adopted by this Board of Education directing 
such reduction and abatement. 

Any proceeds of said 1935 bond taxes received 
after the 1936 taxes hereby levied have been extended 
for collection that are applicable to payment of bonds 
hereby refunded shall be placed in said Sinking Fund 
and by the amount thereof, the taxes for succeeding 
years levied by this ordinance shall be reduced and 
abated in the same manner as hereinabove provided, 
to the end that there shall be no duplication of taxa- 
tion arising from the extension of said 1935 bond 
taxes. 

If after the adoption of this ordinance additional 
proceeds of 1935 bond taxes are received and used in 
paying bonds due January 1, 1937, thus reiUicing the 
amount of bonds necessary to be refunded, then the 
amount of taxes provided to be levied and collected 
by this ordinance shall be abated in the amount of 
such principal payment of bonds as hereinabove 
provided. 

Section 6. This resolution pi'oviding for the issu- 
ance of said bonds and the ordinance to be adopted 
by the City Council of the City of Chicago consenting 
thereto and providing for the levy of taxes for the 
payment thereof shall be operative, effective and 
valid without the submission thereof to the voters 
of said School District or of said City for approval.

Section 10. If there exists no default in payment 
of the principal of and interest upon said refunding 
bonds, after setting aside money sufficient to pay 
interest accruing and principal maturing within the 
next six months period, the City Treasurer as School 



Treasurer, and Comptroller of the City of Chicago, 
from time to time, shall use the money available from 
the proceeds of taxes levied for the payment of the 
refunding bonds in the purchase of such refunding 
bonds at the lowest price obtainable but not to exceed 
their par value and accrued interest, after sealed 
tenders for such purchase shall liave been advertised 
for in a newspaper printed and published in the City 
of Chicago for not less than five days prior to the date 
when such tenders will be considered. 

Thereafter any of said money not so used in the

the refunding bonds for payment according to their 
terms in the manner hereinabove provided. 

Refunding bonds called for payment and paid or 
purchased shall be marked paid and cancelled. 

Section 11. If the money received from the taxes 
levied for the payment of refunding bonds is not im- 
mediately necessary for their redemption or payment 
or if such refunding bonds cannot be purchased before 
maturity as herein authorized, the City Treasurer, as 
School Treasurer, and City Comptroller may invest 
said money in bonds or other interest bearing obliga- 
tions of the United States or in bonds of the State of 
Illinois. 

The maturity date of the invested securities shall 
be prior to the next date when refunding bonds are 
redeemable and prior to the due date of the refunding 
bonds for the payment of which said money was col- 
lected and said securities may be sold when necessary 
to obtain cash to meet refunding bonds and interest 
payments. 

Section 12. Whenever any refunding bonds are 
purchased and/or redeemed and cancelled the taxes 
thereafter to be extended for payment of interest 
upon said refunding bonds shall be reduced in an 
amount equal to the interest that would have there- 
after accrued upon such refunding bonds so paid and 
cancelled, and a resolution shall be adopted by the 
Board of Education of the City of Chicago and by the 
City Council of the City of Chicago finding such facts 
and a certified copy thereof shall be filed in the office 
of the County Clerk of Cook County whereupon it 
shall be the duty of that official to reduce and extend 
such tax levies in accordance therewith. 

Section 13. It is hereby found and determined that 
on account of the continued complications and delay 
that surround the extension and collection of taxes 
in Cook County, due to the reassessment of real prop- 
erty ordered in 1928, it is necessary that these refund- 
ing bonds be authorized and sold at this time and 
prior to the maturity date of said bonds so that the 
money will be available on January 1, 1937, to pay 
said bonds and prevent the Board of Education of the 
City of Chicago from defaulting upon its obligations 
and thus protect its financial credit standing. 

Section 14. This resolution shall take effect and 
be in force from and after its passage. 



I hereby certify that the above is a true and cor- 
rect copy of a resolution adopted by the Board of 
Education of the City of Chicago at its recessed reg- 
ular meeting held December 2, 1936.

AN ORDINANCE 

Consenting to the issuance of $3 OOO.'OOO Refunding 
Bonds of 1937, of the Board of Education of the 
City of Chicago, being a School District in Cook 
County, Illinois and providing for the levy of taxes 
for the payment thereof. 

Whereas, there has been filed with and there is 
before Ihe City Council of the City of Chicago for 
consideration, a certified copy of a resolution adopted 
on December 2, 1936, by the Board of Education of 
the City of Chicago pursuant to authority of an Act 
entitled, "An Act to authorize the board of education 
of any school district constituted by law in any city 
having a population exceeding five hundred thousand 
inhabitants to issue refunding bonds", in force Feb- 
ruary 28, 1934, and which resolution reads as follows: 

RESOLUTION 

Providing for the issue and sale of $3,000,000 Re- 
funding Bonds of 1937, of the Board of Education of 
the City of Chicago, being a School District in Cook 
County, Illinois. 

Whereas, the Board of Education of the City of 
Chicago heretofore issued and sold in conformity with 
law its interest bearing bonds, of which $5,000,000 in 



principal and $100 000 interest will become due Janu- 
ary 1, 1937, and interest upon said bonds has aKvays 
been paid as il became due, and on account of the 
delay in fixing the valuation of taxable property in 
and for Cook County and the economic distress pre- 
vailing, tiie extension of taxes for collection and pay- 
ment thereof has been unduly delayed so that money 
will be available to pay such interest but not sulFi- 
cient for the payment of the principal of all of said 
bonds on January 1, 1937, although at the time said 
bonds were authorized provision was made for the 
levy and collection of sufficient taxes to meet such 
payment; and 

Whereas, the extension for collection of the taxes 
so provided for the payment of said bonds at their 
maturity on January 1, 1937, has been included in 
the general extension of all taxes for the calendar 
year 1935, and under existing statutes, the first in- 
stallment of said 1935 taxes became delinquent Sep- 
tember 1, 193G, and the second installment thereof 
will become delinquent February 1, 1937, and up to 
December 1, 1936, said bond and interest taxes have 
been collected and received by the Board of Education 
of the City of Chicago in the amount of $2 100.000, 
so that under no circumstances will money, the pro- 
ceeds of said taxes, be available on January 1, 1937. 
sufficient to pay the principal of all of said bonds; and 

Whereas, said bonds were authorized for proper 
school purposes and sold and the proceeds received 
by the Board of Education of the City of Chicago and 
said bonds now constitute outstanding legal indebted- 
ness of said Board of Education and there will be 
available money to pay the interest coupons upon said 
bonds that become due on January 1, 1937, and 
$2,000,000 to pay principal of said bonds, thus leaving 
$3 000.000 principal of said bonds unprovided for, and 
in order to take care of said principal amount of 
$3,000,000 due on that day, and to preserve the credit 
of the Board of Education of the City of Chicago by 
providing that such maturing bonds may be paid 
from the prtjceeds of the sale of bonds authorized and 
issued to refund the same, it is necessary that thf 
Board of Education of the City of Chicago authorize, 
issue and sell its refunding bonds to supply means to 
meet said maturing bonds on January 1. 1937, which 
can be done to the advantage of the Board of Edu- 
cation of the City of Chicago because of the prevailing 
favorable conditions of the bond and money markets 
throughout the country and in a manner that will not 
increase the indebtedness of said Board of Education 
of the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, under "An Act to authorize the board of 
education of any school district constituted by law 
in any city having a population exceeding five hun- 
dred ihousand inhabitants to issue refunding bonds", 
in force February 28, 1934, and other statutes, re- 
funding bonds may be issued and sold to refund said 
bonds and the proceeds used to pay the principal 
thereof when presented for payment and at this time 
such refunding bonds can be sold bearing a less inter- 
est rate than borne by the old bonds and, unless such 
refunding is presently provided for, the credit stand- 
ing of the Board of Education of the City of Chicago 
will be placed in jeopardy. 

Noil), Therefore, Be It Resolved by the Board of 
Education of the City of Chicago, being a School Dis- 
trict in Cook County, Illinois, as follows: 

Section 1. For the purpose of refunding the prin- 
cipal of bonds of the Board of Education of the City 
of Chicago in the amount of $3,000,000 due January 
1, 1937, and described as follows:

lowest responsible bidder under formal public com- 
petition; and 

Whereas, Contracts for these miscellaneous

provide for the extension from time to time at the 
option of the City Council from December 31st, 1936, 
to March 31st, 1937; and 

Whereas, Contracts for short terms are not 
economical; and

Whereas, It has been ascertained by investigation 
and hearing had, that all people killed or injured as 
a result and consequence of this calamity, were riding 
as passengers in the last coach of the Loyola Express 
train, which coach was a wooden one and ivhich was 
entirely wrecked and demolished; and 

Whereas, No one was killed or injured riding as 
passengers in the steel coach next to the wooden 
coach on the Loyola Express train nor was it demol- 
ished or wrecked; and 

Whereas, It has been disclosed by investigation, 
by the testimony of certain witnesses who appeared 
before the Council Committee on Local Transporta- 
tion, and by the conclusive facts drawn from the 
wreck itself, that all steel coaches are safe — that they 
were not wrecked or demolished in the calamity of 
November 24th — that no one was injured or killed 
riding as a passenger on a steel coach on either the 
Loyola Express train or the North Shore Elevated 
train; and 

Whereas, Investigation and testimony of witnesses 
disclosed that automatic block signal systems or other 
safety devices would have prevented this terrible 
catastrophe and obviated the terrible loss of life to 
ten and injury to sixty; now, therefore. 

Be It Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago advise and instruct the Corporation Counsel 
of the City of Chicago to draft a petition in behalf 
of the City of Chicago setting forth all of the facts 
pertinent and relevant to the disaster of November 
24, 1936, and to respectfully and urgently recommend 
to the Illinois Commerce Commission that an order be 
entered by them upon the Chicago Rapid Transit Lines 
to the effect that steel coaches replace all wooden 
coaches now in use and in service, and that auto- 
matic block signal systems, as well as other safety 
devices, be installed upon the tracks of the elevated 
lines to prevent great loss of life and injury to the 
public.

ers at a regular meeting held on December 7, 1936, 
concurred in the recommendation of the Committee 
on Roads and Bridges with reference to the resolution 
passed by the City Council of the City of Chicago 
wherein the County of Cook is requested to construct 
a new bridge on Indiana avenue over the Little Calu- 
met River, south of 134th street, so that it will be in 
use by the Fall of 1937. 

Copy of the action passed by the County Board is 
hereto attached. 

Yours very truly. 



(Signed) 



W. G. Donne, 
Committee Clerk. 



Report of Roads and Bridges Committee , 

Section 7 

Your Committee has considered No. 27590, com- 
munication from the City Clerk of the City of Chicago 
transmitting a resolution adopted by the City Council 
of the City of Chicago wherein the County is re- 
quested to advance the construction of a new bridge 
on Indiana avenue over the Little Calumet River 
south of 134th street in the City of Chicago so that 
it will be in use by the Fall of 1937. 

The Superintendent of Highways to whom this 
matter was referred, advises your Committee as 
follows : 

"Upon investigation I find that the construction of 
this bridge is one of the projects contained in a pro- 
gram of highway improvements as jointly formulated 
by the City of Chicago, the County of Cook and the 
State of Illinois, as a project to be built by the County 
during 1938. 

During the past few days, when information was 
received from the Federal Government that all the 
improvements to be built by the County with Federal 
aid during 1937, had to be completed by July 1, 1937, 
thereby necessitating the removal of certain of the 
originally scheduled projects, it was thought that the 
construction of the bridge above referred to might be 
added to the 1937 program as a substitute project. 

Upon investigating the details of the improvement, 
it was found that the construction, besides being of 
comparatively large magnitude, would involve the 
acquisition of additional right-of-way and would re- 
sult in causing damages to be sustained by abutting 
privately-owned property. 

For these reasons, the Indiana Avenue Bridge was 
not included in the 1937 program, but in view of the 
apparent desirability and necessity of construction 
of the new bridge, I respectfully recommend that this 
project be included in a new Five Year Highway Con- 
struction Program, which should shortly be prepared 
for the County, as an improvement to be built in 
1938. 

I, therefore, respectfully recommend that the ac- 
companying communication be placed on file by your 
Honorable Body, and that the common council of the 
City of Chicago be advised of these facts." 

Your committee concurring therein, recommends 
that the construction of said bridge be included as a

project in the new Five Year Highway Construction 
Program as an improvement to be built in 1938 and 
that the City Council of the City of Chicago be ad- 
vised of the action herein taken. 

(Concurred in by the Board of County Commission- 
ers at meeting held on December 7, 1936.) 



Proposed Amendment of the Zoning Ordinance (Use 
District Map No. 12). 

The City Clerk presented an ordinance for amend- 
ment of the zoning ordinance by changing all the Apart- 
ment District symbols and indications shown on Use

street; the alley next west of N. Neenah avenue; W. 
Belmont avenue; and the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul 
and Pacific Railroad, to those of a Commercial District, 
which was 

Referred to the Committee on Buildings and Zoning. 



Proposed Vacation of an Alley. 

The City Clerk presented an ordinance providing for 
the vacation of the east-and-west alley in the block 
bounded by W. Belmont avenue, N. Neenah avenue, W. 
School street and the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and 
Pacific Railroad, in Oliver L. Watson's 2nd Belmont 
Avenue Addition to Chicago, S.E.%, Section 19-40-13 
(Kimiball Candy Company), which was 

Referred to the Committee on Local Industries, Streets 
and Alleys. 



Claims of Container Corporation of America and Ray- 
mon J. Brewer. 

The City Clerk presented a claim of Container Cor- 
poration of America for reimbursement of the cost of 
laying a water service pipe, and a claim of Raymon J. 
Brewer for compensation for damage to an automobile, 
which were 

Referred to the Committee on Finance.

Chicago, December 9, 1936.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In compliance with Section 5 of Part 
Two, Article XII of "An Act to provide for the In- 
corporation of Cities and Villages," requiring the 
City Comptroller to advertise for bids from regularly 
established national and state banks, for interest upon 
the money of the City so deposited in the said banks, 
and in pursuance to the ordinances passed thereunder, 



and in accordance with Sections 128 to 139 of the 
Otis Act passed in 1917; advertisement was made for 
bids for interest on average daily balances, for interest 
on money of the City and School funds (including 
Special Deposits) as may be deposited and permitted 
to remain without diminution for periods of at least 
3iO, 60, or 90 days; and from such banks as can qualify 
under the ordinances of the City as Active Banks 
for the fiscal year 1937 for interest which they will 
pay on the average daily balances, to be computed and 
paid in the same way as on City and School moneys 
deposited in any such bank if the same is designated 
as an Active Bank, — such bid and the rate offered 
to be separate and distinct from the rate of interest 
which such bank will pay on time deposits. 

In addition to our advertisement in the City's offi- 
cial newspaper, the "Journal of Commerce," adver- 
tisement was made in the "Bond Buyer" and the "Wall 
Street Journal." which circulate among financial in- 
stitutions throughout the country. We also sent 
letter and advertisement to the banks in the Federal 
Reserve Cities of 500,000 population or more. 

The following bids from Chicago banks were re- 
ceived December 3, 1936. No bid was received from 
any bank outside of Chicago:

These bids are submitted herewith. 

The bids of both banks are conditioned upon the 
provision that no interest will be paid subsequent to 
August 23, 1937, "in order to satisfy the requirements 
of Section 371a and 371b, of Title 12 of the United 
States Code and said Regulation of the Board of 
Governors of the Federal Reserve System." 

We transmit herewith opinion of the Corporation 
Counsel, in reference to the question as to whether 
the provisions of the Board of Governors of the Fed- 
eral Reserve System apply to the funds of the City 
of Chicago. 

Very truly yours,

Authorization for the Issuance and Sale of Refunding 

Bonds of 1937 of the Board of Education of the 

City of Chicago ($3,000,000.00). 

The City Clerk presented the following certified copy 
of a resolution adopted on December 9, 1936 by the 
Board of Education of the City of Chicago, considera- 
tion of which was temporarily deferred: 

Resolution providing for the issue and sale of $3,000,- 
000 Refunding Bonds of 1937, of the Board of Edu- 
cation of t he City of Chicago, being a School District 
in Cook County, Illinois. 

Whereas, the Board of Education of the City of 
Chicago heretofore issued and sold in conformity 
with law its interest bearing bonds, of which 
$5,000,000 in principal and $100,000 interest will be- 
come due January 1, 1937, and interest upon said 
bonds has always been paid as it became due, and 
on account of the delay in fixing the valuation of 
taxable property in and for Cook County and the 
economic distress prevailing, the extension of taxes 
for collection and payment thereof has been unduly 
delayed so that money will be available to pay such 
interest but not sufficient for the payment of the 
principal of all of said bonds on January 1, 1937, 
although at the time said bonds were authorized pro- 
vision was made for the levy and collection of sufS- 
cient taxes to meet such payment; and 

Whereas, the extension for collection of the taxes 
so provided for the payment of said bonds at their 
maturity on January 1. 1937, has been included in 
the general extension of all taxes for the calendar 
year 1935, and under existing statutes, the first in- 
stallment of said 1935 taxes became delinquent Sep- 
tember 1, 1936, and the second installment thereof 
will become delinquent February 1, 1937, and up to 
December 1, 1936, said bond and interest taxes have 
. been collected and received by the Board of Educa- 
tion of the City of Chicago in the amount of $2,100,000. 
so that under no circumstances will money, the pro- 
ceeds of said taxes, be available on January 1, 1937, 
sufficient to pay the principal of all of said bonds; and 

Whereas, said bonds were authorized for proper 
school purposes and sold and the proceeds received 
by the Board of Education of the City of Chicago and 
said bonds now constitute outstanding legal indebted- 
ness of said Board of Education and there will be 
available money to pay the interest coupons upon 
said bonds that become due on January 1, 1937, and 
$2,000,000 to pay principal of said bonds, thus leav- 
ing $3,000,000 principal of said bonds unprovided for 
and in order to take care of said principal amount 
of $3,000,000 due on that day, and to preserve the 
credit of the Board of Education nf the City of Chi- 
cago by providing that such maturing bonds may be 
paid from the proceeds of the sale of bonds author- 



ized and issued to refund the same, it is necessary that 
the Board of Education of the City of Chicago author- 
ize, issue and sell its refunding bonds to supply means 
to meet said maturing bonds on January 1, 1937, which 
can be done to the advantage of the Board of Educa- 
tion of the City of Chicago because of the prevailing 
favorable conditions of the bond and money markets 
throughout the country and in a manner that will not 
increase the indebtedness of said Board of Education 
of the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, under "An Act to authorize the board of 
education of any school district constituted by law 
in any city having a population exceeding five hun- 
dred thousand inhabitants to issue refund#ig bonds", 
in force February 28, 1934, and other statutes, refund- 
ing bonds may be issued and sold to refund said bonds 
and the proceeds used to pay the principal thereof 
when presented for payment and at this time such 
refunding bonds can be sold bearing a less interest 
rate than borne by the old bonds and, unless such 
refunding is presently provided for, the credit stand- 
ing of the Board of Education of the City of Chicago 
will be placed in jeopardy. 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved by the Board of 
Education of the City of Chicago, being a School Dis- 
trict in Cook County, Illinois, as follows: 

Section 1. For the purpose of refunding the prin- 
cipal of bonds of the Board of Education of the City

In the event proceeds of taxes hereby provided to 
be levied are not available in time to meet any pay- 
ments of principal of and interest upon said refund- 
ing bonds, the fiscal officers of the Board of Educa- 
tion of the City of Chicago are hereby directed to 
make such payments from any funds of said School 
District that may be temporarily so used and when 
the proceeds of such taxes are received such funds 
shall be reimbursed all to the purpose that the credit 
of said School District may be preserved. 

After the adoption of such ordinance levying said 
taxes, the City Clerk of the City of Chicago is hereby 
directed to file a copy thereof duly certified by him 
in the office of the County Clerk of Cook County, 
Illinois, whereupon it shall be the duty of such 
County Clerk to extend the taxes in said ordinance 
provided for. 

Section 5. Taxes for payment of the bonds hereby 
refunded and other bonds due January 1, 1937, were 
included in the extension of taxes for the year 1935, 
as provided in the ordinances authorizing such bonds 
as required by the Constitution of the State of Illi- 
nois, and the proceeds of such taxes received prior 
to January 1, 1937, will be used to pay the interest 
on said bonds due January 1, 1937, and the balance 
of such tax proceeds will be used to pay the principal 
of said bonds due January 1, 1937, thereby reducing 
the principal amount of bonds to be refunded. 

Taxes levied by this ordinance for the year 1936 
will not be extended for collection until some time 
prior to August 1, 1937, and before the time such 1936 
taxes are so extended for collection, there will have 
been collected and received by the City Treasurer — 
ex-officio School Treasurer — additional proceeds of 
the 1935 bond taxes and the money so received 
from said 1935 bond taxes that is applicable to the 
payment of bonds hereby refunded shall be placed in 
the Sinking Fund created by this ordinance and used 
to pay the interest upon and principal of these re- 
funding bonds and the levy made by this ordinance

for the year 1936 prior to extension thereof shall be 
reduced and abated in that amount. Such taxes shall 
be reduced and abated by the County Clerk of Cook 
County upon receipt of a certified copy of a resolu- 
tion adopted by this Board of Education directing 
such reduction and abatement. 

Any proceeds of said 1935 bond taxes received 
after the 1936 taxes hereby levied have been extended 
for collection that are applicable to payment of bonds 
hereby refunded shall be placed in said Sinking Fund 
and by the amount thereof, the taxes for succeeding 
years levied by this ordinance shall be reduced and 
abated in the same manner as hereinabove provided, 
to the end that there shall be no duplication of taxa- 
tion arising from the extension of said 1935 bond 
taxes. 

If after the adoption of this ordinance additional 
proceeds of 1935 bond taxes are received such money 
shall be used in paying bonds due January 1, 1937, 
thus reducing the amount of bonds necessary to be 
refunded, then the amount of taxes provided to be 
levied and collected by this ordinance shall be abated 
in the amount of such principal payment of bonds as 
hereinabove provided. 

Section 6. This resolution providing for the issu- 
ance of said bonds and the ordinance to be adopted 
by the City Council of the City of Chicago consenting 
thereto and providing for the levy of taxes for the 
payment thereof shall be operative, effective and 
valid without the submission thereof to the voters 
of said School District or of said City for approval. 

The refunding bonds hereby authorized shall be 
executed as herein provided as soon as may be and 
thereupon shall be deposited for safe-keeping under 
the direction and control of the City Comptroller, 
which official under the direction of the Board of 
Education of the City of Chicago is authorized to 
sell said refunding bonds for the best price obtain- 
able but for not less than the par value thereof and 
accrued interest after such advertising as he may 
deem advisable and upon receipt of the purchase 
price therefor, the City Comptroller and City Treas- 
urer, as School Treasurer, shall deliver said refund- 
ing bonds to the purchaser. 

The amount of refunding bonds sold and to be de- 
livered shall be reduced by the amount of proceeds 
of 1935 bond taxes applicable to payment of the bonds 
hereby refunded received by the City Treasurer, ex- 
officio School Treasurer since December 1, 1936. 

The money received from the sale of said bonds 
shall be placed in a special account in the depositary 
banks of the Board of Education of the City of Chi- 
cago, designated as "Account for paying bonds re- 
funded by Refunding Bonds of 1937" as authorized 
by "Ordinance consenting to the issuance of $3,000,- 
000 Refunding Bonds of 1937, of the Board of Educa- 
tion of the City of Chicago, being a School District 
in Cook County, Illinois, and providing for the levy 
of taxes for the payment thereof," adopted December 
9, 1936, and shall constitute a trust fund and be used 
solely for the purpose of paying the principal of the 
bonds hereby refunded and upon payment thereof 
said bonds shall be marked paid and canceled. No 
warrant shall be drawn against said account for any 
purpose whatsoever other than to pay the bonds 
hereby refunded. 

Any premium received shall be placed in the Sink- 
ing Fund Account hereinafter designated and used to 
pay the interest accruing upon said refunding bonds 
or in calling same for payment. 

Section 7. That after the adoption of this resolu- 
tion, a copy thereof duly certified by the Secretary 



of the Board of Education of the City of Chicago 
shall be filed with the City Clerk of the City of Chi- 
cago with directions for presenting same to the City 
Council of the City of Chicago for consideration and 
approval. If and when the City Council of the City of 
Chicago adopts an ordinance consenting to the incur- 
ring of such indebtedness and the issuance of bonds in 
evidence thereof and providing for the levy of taxes 
as aioresaid for the payment thereof, a copy of such 
ordinance and of the proceedings incident to its adop- 
tion, duly certified' by the City Clerk of Chicago shall 
be filed with the Secretary of the Board of Education 
of the City of Chicago and entered upon the official 
records thereof. 

Section 8. Tlie proceeds of the taxes hereby levied 
for the payment of the principal of and interest upon 
said Refunding Bonds of 1937 shall be deposited in 
a special account and designated as "Board of Edu- 
cation Refunding Bonds of 1937 Bond and Interest 
Account" and shall be faithfully applied to the pay- 
ment of the refunding bonds and interest thereon. 

Section 9. If the money received from the taxes 
levied for the payment of refunding bonds is not im- 
mediately necessary for their redemption or payment, 
the City Treasurer, as School Treasurer, and City 
Comptroller may invest said money in bonds or other 
interest bearing obligations of the United States or 
in bonds of the State of Illinois. 

The maturity date of the invested securities shall 
be prior to the next date when refunding bonds are 
redeemable and prior to the due date of the refunding 
bonds for the payment of which said money was col- 
lected and said securities may be sold when necessary 
to obtain cash to meet refunding bonds and interest 
payments. 

Section 10. Whenever any refunding bonds are 
redeemed and cancelled the taxes thereafter to be ex- 
tended for payment of interest upon said refunding 
bonds shall be reduced in an amount equal to the 
interest that would have thereafter accrued upon such 
refunding bonds so paid and cancelled, and a resolu- 
tion shall be adopted by the Board of Education of 
the City of Chicago finding such facts and a certified 
copy thereof shall be filed in the office of the County 
Clerk of Cook County whereupon it shall be the duty 
of that official to reduce and extend such tax levies 
in accordance therewith. 

Section 11. It is hereby found and determined that 
on account of the continued complications and delay 
that surround the extension and collection of taxes 
in Cook County, due to the reassessment of real prop- 
erty ordered in 1928, it is necessary that those refund- 
ing bonds be authorized and sold at this time and 
prior to the maturity date of said bonds so that the 
money will be available on January 1, 1937, to pay 
said bonds and prevent the Board of Education of the 
City of Chicago from defaulting upon its obligation."? 
and thus protect its financial credit standing. 

Section 12. All resolutions heretofore adopted in 
confiict herewith are hereby repealed and this reso- 
lution shall take effect and be in force from and 
after its passage. 

I hereby certify that the above is a true and cor- 
rect copy of a resolution adopted by the Board of 
Education of the City of Chicago at its regular meet- 
ing held December 9, 1936.

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

AN ORDINANCE 

Consenting to the issuance of $3,000,000 Refunding 
Bonds of 1937, of the Board of Education of the 
City of Chicago, being a School District in Cook 
County, Hlinois, and providing for the levy of taxes 
for the payment thereof. 

Whereas, there has been filed with and there is 
before the City Council of the City of Chicago for 
consideration, a certified copy of a resolution adopted 
on December 9, 1936, by the Board of Education of 
the City of Chicago pursuant to authority of an Act 
entitled, "An Act to authorize the board of education 
of any school district constituted by law in any city 
having a population exceeding five hundred thousand 
inhabitants to issue refunding bonds'", in force Feb- 
ruary 28, 1934, and which resolution reads as follows: 

RESOLUTION 

Providing for the issue and sale of $3,000,000 Re- 
funding Bonds of 1937, of the Board of Education of 
the City of Chicago, being a School District in Cook 
County, Illinois. 

Whereas, the Board of Education of the City of 
Chicago heretofore issued and sold in conformity with 
law its interest bearing bonds, of which $5,000,000 in 
principal and $100,000 interest will become due Janu- 
ary 1, 1937, and interest upon said bonds has always 
been paid as it became due, and on account of the 
delay in fixing the valuation of taxable property in 
and for Cook County and the economic distress pre- 
vailing, the extension of taxes for collection and pay- 
ment thereof has been unduly delayed so that money 
will be available to pay such interest but not suffi- 
cient for the payment of the principal of all of said 
bonds on January 1, 1937, although at the time said 



December 9, 1936 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES

bonds were authorized provision was made for the 
levy and collection of sufficient taxes to meet such 
payment; and 

Whereas, the extension for collection of the taxes 
so provided for the payment of said bonds at their 
maturity on January 1, 1937, has been included in 
the general extension of all taxes for the calendar 
year 1935, and under existing statutes, the first in- 
stallment of said 1935 taxes became delinquent Sep- 
tember 1, 1936, and the second installment thereof 
will become delinquent February 1, 1937, and up to 
December 1, 1936, said bond and interest taxes have 
been collected and received by the Board of Education 
of the City of Chicago in the amount of $2,100,000, 
so that under no circumstances will money, the pro- 
ceeds of said taxes, be available on January 1, 1937, 
sufficient to pay the principal of all of said bonds; and 

Whereas, said bonds were authorized for proper 
school purposes and sold and the proceeds received 
by the Board of Education of the City of Chicago and 
said bonds now constitute outstanding legal indebted- 
ness of said Board of Education and there will be 
available money to pay the interest coupons upon said 
bonds that become due on January 1, 1937, and 
$2,000,000 to pay principal of said bonds, thus leaving 
$3,000,000 principal of said bonds unprovided for, and 
in order to take care of said principal amount of 
$3,000,000 due on that day, and to preserve the credit 
of the Board of Education of the City of Chicago by 
providing that such maturing bonds may be paid 
from the proceeds of the sale of bonds authorized and 
issued to refund the same, it is necessary that the 
Board of Education of the City of Chicago authorize, 
issue and sell its refunding bonds to supply means to 
meet said maturing bonds on January 1, 1937, which 
can be done to the advantage of the Board of Edu- 
cation of the City of Chicago because of the prevailing 
favorable conditions of the bond and money markets 
throughout the country and in a manner that will not 
increase the indebtedness of said Board of Education 
of the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, under "An Act to authorize the board of 
education of any school district constituted by law 
in any city having a population exceeding five hun- 
dred thousand inhabitants to issue refunding bonds", 
in force February 28, 1934, and other statutes, re- 
funding bonds may be issued and sold to refund said 
bonds and the proceeds used to pay the principal 
thereof when presented for payment and at this time 
such refunding bonds can be sold bearing a less inter- 
est rate than borne by the old bonds and, unless such 
refunding is presently provided for, the credit stand- 
ing of the Board of Education of the City of Chicago 
will be placed in jeopardy. 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved by the Board of 
Education of the City of Chicago, being a School Dis- 
trict in Cook County, Illinois, as follows: 

Section 1. For the purpose of refunding the prin- 
cipal of bonds of the Board of Education of the City

ments of principal of and interest upon said refund- 
ing bonds, the fiscal officers of the Board of Education 



of the City of Chicago are hereby directed to make

Illinois, whereupon it shall be the duly of such County 
Clerk to extend the taxes in said ordinance provided 
for. 

Section 5. Taxes for payment of the bonds hereby 
refunded and other bonds due January 1, 1937, were 
included in the extension of taxes for tiie year 1935, 
as provided in the ordinance authorizing such bonds 
as required by the Constitution of the State ol Illinois, 
and proceeds of such taxes received prior to January 
1, 1937, will be used to pay the interest on said bonds 
due January 1, 1937, and the balance of such tax 
proceeds will be used to pay the principal of said 
bonds due January 1, 1937, thereby reducing the 
principal amount of bonds to be refunded. 

Taxes levied by this ordinance for the year 1936 
will not be extended for collection until some time 
prior to August 1, 1937, and before the time such 1936 
taxes are so extended for collection, there will have

pay the interest upon and principal of these refund- 
ing bonds and the levy made by this ordinance for the

and abated in that amount. Such taxes shall be re- 
duced and abated by the County Clerk of Cook County

years levied by this ordinance shall be reduced and 
abated in the same manner as hereinabove provided, 
to the end that there shall be no duplication of taxa- 
tion arising from the extension of said 1935 bond 
taxes.

to be levied and collected by this ordinance shall be 
abated in the amount of such principal payment of 
bonds as hereinabove provided. 

Section 6. This resolution providing for the issu- 
ance of said bonds and the ordinance to be adopted

thereto and providing for the levy of taxes for the

for, the City Comptroller and City Treasurer, as

to the purchaser.

delivered shall be reduced by the amount of proceeds 
of 1935 bond taxes applicable to payment of the bonds 
hereby refunded received by the City Treasurer, ex- 
officio School Treasurer since December 1, 1936. 

The money received from the sale of said bonds 
shall be placed in a special account in the depositary 
banks of the Board of Education of the City of Chi- 
cago, designated as "Account for paying bonds re- 
funded by Refunding Bonds of 1937" as authorized 
by "Ordinance consenting to the issuance of $3,000,00(> 
Refunding Bonds of 1937, of the Board of Education 
of the City of Chicago, being a School District in 
Cook County, Illinois, and providing for the levy of 
taxes for the payment thereof," adopted December 
9, 1936, and shall constitute a trust fund and be used 
solely l^or the purpose of paying the principal of the 
bonds hereby refunded and upon payment thereof 
said bonds shall be marked paid and cancelled. No 
warrant shall be drawn against said account for any 
purpose whatsoever other than to pay the bonds 
hereby refunded. 

Any premium received shall be placed in the Sink- 
ing Fund Account hereinafter designated and used 
to pay the interest accruing upon said refunding 
bonds or in calling same for payment. 

Section 7. That after the adoption of this resolu- 
tion a copy thereof duly certified by the Secretary of 
the Board of Education of the City of Chicago shall be 
filed with the City Clerk of the City of Chicago with 
directions for presenting same to the City Council 
of the City of Chicago for consideration and approval. 
If and when the City Council of the City of Chicago 
adopts an ordinance consenting to the incurring of 
such indebtedness and the issuance of bonds in evi- 
dence thereof and providing for the levy of taxes as 
aforesaid for the payment thereof, a copy of such 
ordinance and of the proceedings incident to its adop- 
tion, duly certified by the City Clerk of Chicago shall 
be filed with the Secretary of the Board of Education 
of the City of Chicago and entered upon the official 
records thereof. 

Section 8. The proceeds of the taxes hereby levied 
for the payment of the principal of and interest upon 
said Refunding Bonds of 1937 shall be deposited in a 
special account and designated as "Board of Education 
Refunding Bonds of 1937 Bond and Interest Account" 
and shall be faithfully applied to the payment of the 
refunding bonds and interest thereon. 

Section 9. If the money received from the taxes 
levied for the payment of refunding bonds is not im- 
mediately necessary for their redemption or payment 
the City Treasurer, as School Treasurer, and City 
Comptroller may invest said money in bonds or other 
interest bearing obligations of the United States or 
in bonds of the State of Illinois. 

The maturity date of the invested securities shall 
be prior to the next date when refunding bonds are 
redeemable and prior to the due date of the refund- 
ing bonds for the payment of which said money was 



collected and said securities may be sold when neces- 
sary to obtain cash to meet refunding bonds and in- 
terest payments. 

Section 10. Whenever any refunding bonds are 
redeemed and cancelled the taxes hereafter to be ex- 
tended for payment of interest upon said refunding 
bonds shall be reduced in an amount equal to the 
interest that would have thereafter accrued upon 
such refunding bonds so paid and cancelled, and a 
resolution shall be adopted by the Board of Educa- 
tion of the City of Chicago finding such facts and a 
certified copy thereof shall be filed in the office of 
the County Clerk of Cook County whereupon it shall 
be the duty of that official to reduce and extend such 
tax levies in accordance therewith. 

Section 11. It is hereby found and determined that 
on account of the continued complications and delay 
that surround the extension and collection of taxes in 
Cook County, due to the reassessment of real property 
ordered in 1928, it is necessary that these refunding 
bonds be authorized and sold at this time and prior 
to the maturity date of said bonds so that the money 
will be available on January 1, 1937, to pay said bonds 
and prevent the Board of Education of the City of 
Chicago from defaulting upon its obligations and thus 
protect its financial credit standing. 

Section 12. All resolutions heretofore adopted in 
conflict herewith are hereby repealed and this reso- 
lution shall take effect and be in force from and after 
its passage. 

Whereas, under said Act said bonds may be issued 
and sold with the consent of the City Council of the 
City of Chicago expressed by ordinance and this 
City Council desires to consent thereto and, as re- 
quired by said Act and pursuant to the demand and 
under the direction of said Board of Education, 
further desires to provide for the levy of taxes for 
the payment of the principal of and interest upon said 
bonds; now, therefore.

Chicago:

1937, and semi-annually thereafter on January 1 and 
July 1 of each year. Said bonds shall be designated

are hereby approved and said resolution providing 
for the issuance of said bonds and this ordinance con- 
senting thereto and providing for the levy of taxes 
for the payment of the principal of and interest upon

No request being made by any two Aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
, thereon to. the next regular meeting, the motion pre- 
vailed and said ordinance was passed by yeas and nays 
as follows:

Nays — None. 

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Ordinance 

Autho^iz'irig -the 'issuance of $6,600,000 Refunding 
Bonds of ''1937, of the City of Chicago, and provid- 
ing for the levy of taxes for payment thereof. 

Whereas, the City of Chicago heretofore issued 
and sold in conformity with law its interest bearing 
bonds of which $10,339,000 in principal amount and 
interest thereon will become due January 1, 1937, 
• and interest upon said bonds has always been paid 
as it became due, and on account of the delay in fix- 
ing the valuation of taxable property in and for Cook 
County and the economic distress prevailing, the 
extension of taxes for collection and payment thereof 
''■ has been unduly delayed so that money will be avail- 
■ able to pay such interest, but not sufficient for the 
■■■ payment of the principal of all of said bonds due 
January 1, 1937, although the ordinances authorizing 
said bonds made provision for the levy and collection 
of sufficient taxes to meet such payment; and 

Whereas, the extension for collection of the taxes 
so provided for the payment of said bonds at their 
maturity on January 1, 1937, has been included in 
the general extension of all taxes for the calendar 
year 1935, and under existing statutes, the first in- 
' stallment of said' 1935 taxes became delinquent Sep- 
tember 1, 1936, and the second installment thereof 
will become delinquent February 1, 1937, and up to 
December 1, 1936, said bond and interest taxes have 
been collected and received by the City of Chicago 
in an amount sufficient to pay principal of said bonds 
due January 1. 1937, in the amount of $3,739,000 and 
all interest due on that date, so that under no circum- 
stances will money, the proceeds of said taxes, be 
available on January 1, 1937, sufficient to pay the 
principal of all of said bonds; and 

^ Whereas, said bonds were authorized for proper 
corporate purposes and sold and the proceeds re- 
ceived by the City of Chicago and said bonds now 
constitute outstanding legal indebtedness of said 
City and there will be available money to pay the 
interest coupons upon said bonds that become due on 
January 1, 1937, and $3,739,000 to pay principal of 
said bonds thus leaving $6,600,000 principal of said 
bonds unprovided for, and in order to take care of 
the principal in the amount of $6,600,000 due on that 
day, and to preserve the credit of the City of Chicago 
by providing that such maturing bonds may he paid 
from the proceeds of the sale of bonds authorized 
and issued to refund the same, it is necessary that 
the City of Chicago authorize, issue and sell its re- 
funding bonds to supply means to meet said maturing 
bonds on January 1, 1937, which can be done to the 
advantage of the City of Chicago because of the pre- 



vailing favorable conditions of the bond and money 
markets throughout the country and in a manner that 
will not increase the indebtedness of said City; and 

Whereas, under "An Act authorizing any county, 
city, village, incorporated town, school district, sani- 
tary district, forest preserve district or park district 
to issue refunding bonds and to provide for the levy 
of taxes for the payment thereof," approved May 6, 
1935, and other statutes, refunding bonds may be 
issued and sold to refund said bonds and the proceeds 
used to pay the principal thereof when presented for 
payment and at this time such refunding bonds can 
be sold bearing a less interest rate than borne by the 
old bonds and, unless such refunding is presently 
provided for the credit standing of the City of Chi- 
cago will be placed in jeopardy. Now, therefore, 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. For the purpose of refunding the prin- 
cipal of bonds of the City of Chicago in the amount of 
$6,600,000 and due January 1, 1937, described as

Provision to meet the requirements of this section 
shall be included in the annual appropriation bill of 
the City of Chicago for each of the years aforesaid 
and the City of Chicago hereby obligates itself an- 
nually in due time and manner to perform all things 
and take all action required by law to carry out the 
provisions of this section. 

In the event proceeds of taxes hereby levied are 
not available in time to meet any payments of prin- 
cipal of and interest upon said refunding bonds, then 
the fiscal officers of said City are hereby directed to 
make such payments from any funds of the City that 
may be temporarily so used and when the proceeds 
of such taxes are received such funds shall be re- 
imbursed all to the end that the credit of the City 
may be preserved. 

A copy of this ordinance duly certified by the City 
Clerk shall be filed in the office of the County Clerk 
of Cook County and shall constitute authority for the 
extension and collection of such taxes as required 
by the constitution. 

Money received from the proceeds of such taxes 
shall be deposited in a special fund designated as 
"Refunding Bonds of 1937 and Interest Sinking Fund 
Account of the City of Chicago," and faithfully ap- 
plied to the payment of the refunding bonds and 
interest thereon. 

Taxes for payment of the bonds hereby refunded 
and other bonds due January 1, 1937, were included 
in the extension of taxes for the year 1935 as pro- 
vided in the several ordinances authorizing such 
bonds as required by the Constitution of the State 
of Illinois and proceeds of such taxes received prior 
to January 1, 1937, will be used to pay the interest 
on said bonds due January 1, 1937, and the balance of 
such tax proceeds will be used to pay the principal 
of said bonds due January 1, 1937, thereby reducing 
the principal amount of bonds to be refunded. 

Taxes levied by this ordinance for the year 1936 
will not be extended for collection until some time 
prior to August 1, 1937, and before the time such 
1936 taxes are so extended for collection, there will 



have been collected and received by the City Comp- 
troller additional proceeds of the 1935 bond taxes and 
the money so received from said 1935 bond taxes 
that is applicable to the payment of bonds hereby 
refunded shall be placed in the Sinking Fund cre- 
ated by this ordinance and used to pay the interest 
upon and principal of these refunding bonds and the 
levy made by this ordinance for the year 1936 prior 
to extension thereof shall be reduced and abated in 
that amount which shall be accomplished by the City 
Comptroller filing with the County Clerk of Cook 
County a certificate showing the amount to be abated. 

Any proceeds of said 1935 bond taxes received after 
said 1936 bond taxes have been extended for collec- 
tion that are applicable to payment of bonds hereby 
refunded shall be placed in said Sinking Fund and 
by the amount thereof the taxes for succeeding years 
levied by this ordinance shall be reduced and abated 
in like manner to the end that there shall be no du- 
plication of taxation arising from the extension of 
said 1935 bond taxes. 

If after the adoption of this ordinance additional 
proceeds of 1935 bond taxes are received such money 
shall be used in paying bonds due January 1, 1937, 
thus reducing the amount of bonds necessary to be 
refunded, then the amount of taxes provided to be 
levied and collected by this ordinance shall be abated 
in the amount of such principal payment of bonds 
and the City Comptroller shall file with the County 
Clerk of Cook County a certificate showing such 
amount to be abated from the taxes hereby levied. 

Section 6. If the money received from the taxes 
levied for the payment of refunding bonds is not 
immediately necessary for their redemption or pay- 
ment or if such refunding bonds cannot be purchased 
before maturity as herein authorized, the Treasurer 
and City Comptroller may invest said money in bonds 
or other interest bearing obligations of the United 
States or in bonds of the State of Illinois. 

The maturity date of the invested securities shall 
be prior to the next date when refunding bonds are 
redeemable and prior to the due date of the refund- 
ing bonds for the payment of which said money was 
collected and said securities may be sold when neces- 
sary to obtain cash to meet refunding bonds and 
interest payments. 

Section 7. Whenever any refunding bonds are 
purchased and/or redeemed and cancelled the taxes 
thereafter to be extended for payment of interest 
upon said refunding bonds shall be reduced in an 
amount equal to the interest that would have there- 
after accrued upon such refunding bonds sd paid and 
cancelled, which shall be accomplished by the City 
Comptroller filing with the County Clerk of Cook 
County a certificate showing the amount to be 
abated. 

Section 8. Any money available from uncollected 
taxes levied for prior years for payment of the in- 
debtedness represented by the bonds hereby refunded 
shall be placed in the Sinking Fund Account herein- 
above designated and such money shall be used to 
purchase and call for payment, or to pay at maturity 
such refunding bonds and interest thereon, as herein 
provided. 

Section 9. It is hereby found and determined that 
on account of the continued complications and delay 
that surround the extension and collection of taxes 
in Cook County, due to the reassessment of real prop- 
erty ordered in 1928, it is necessary that these re- 
funding bonds be authorized and sold at this time and 
prior to the maturity date of said bonds so that the

money will be available on January 1, 1937, to pay 
said bonds and prevent the City of Chicago from de- 
faulting upon its obligations and thus protect its 
financial credit standing. 

Section 10. This ordinance shall be in force upon 
its adoption and publication.

December 9, 1936 



i 



the strict letter of the zoning ordinance to hear 
and recommend variation of such ordinance to the 
City Council under rules provided in the zoning 
ordinance; and 

Whereas, in the rules provided in the zoning 
ordinance relating to the authority of the board of 
appeals to recommend variations to the City Coun- 
cil there appears the following rule in Section 28, 
paragraph (16) : 

'Alterations or relaxation of the provisions of 
Section 22, to the extent necessary to prevent 
undue or peculiar hardship *** when clearly 
the general purposes and intent thereof will be 
better served thereby'; 



and 



Whereas, the board of appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the parties 
and being fully advised in the premises, finds that 
the premises in question are located on the east 
side of Baldwin avenue; that the south end of the 
block is zoned for commercial uses for a distance 
of 150 feet north of E. 75th street upon which 
buildings may be erected to the street line; that the 
west side of Baldwin avenue is the rear of the lots 
fronting on Bennett avenue, and is entirely built 
up with garages out to the street line and that the 
applicant should be granted relief on the ground 
of particular hardship in the way of carrying out 
the strict letter of the zoning ordinance on con- 
dition that all permits necessary for the erection 
of the proposed buildings shall be obtained within 
six months and all work involved shall be com- 
pleted within twelve months after the passage of an

nances of the City of Chicago shall be complied 
with and that plans in triplicate shall be approved 
by the board of appeals before a building permit 
is issued herein; and 



Whereas, the board further finds that the prem- 
ises are located in an apartment district; that di- 
rectly across the street from the premises affected 
the entire block is improved with buildings whose 
street walls extend to the street line, and that 
there is particular hardship in this case and that 
the variation may be made consistently in harmony 
with the intent and purpose of the zoning regula- 
tions and would not be detrimental to the public 
welfare, safety or health, 

Resolved, that the board of appeals by virtue of 
the authority conferred upon it does hereby recom- 
mend that the City Council enact the following 
ordinance : 

'Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of

Whereas, The City of Chicago by an ordinance

December 7th, 1933. page 1336, transferred to the 
jurisdiction and control of the Municipal Tubercu- 
losis Sanitarium that part of the Gage Farm property 
heretofore occupied by the Chicago and Cook County 
School for Boys, said ordinance containing conditions 
that the Sanitarium should take actual possession of 
the premises by a certain time and open a branch 
Sanitarium thereon and maintain the buildings and 
equipment in good order and repair and within five 
years after the passage of said original ordinance 
should make an agreement for the reimbursement 
of the Corporate Fund for the fair value of said 
premises; and. 

Whereas, Under said ordinances the jurisdiction 
and control of the Sanitarium will terminate on De- 
cember 1st, 1936, and the City Comptroller has cer- 
tified that the Sanitarium has complied with all the 
other conditions of said ordinance, but its finances 
at this time do not warrant the making of an agree- 
ment for the reimbursement of the Corporate Fund 
and the Sanitarium is now conducting a branch Sani- 
tarium on said premises and has requested that its 
permission to use said premises be extended for a 
further period of five years; therefore, 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That the Municipal Tuberculosis Sani- 
tarium is hereby authorized to maintain jurisdiction 
and control, for use as a branch Sanitarium, of the 
following-described real estate above referred to lo- 
cated in the CouHty of Cook and State of Illinois, to- 
wit:

■ ; (39) North, iRang« twelve (12), East of the Third

or less. 

Section 2. That such jurisdiction and control of 
said Municip-al Tuberculosis Sanitarium shall con- 
tinue for a period of five years beginning December 
1st, 1936, but shall cease and determine in case 
(a) the Sanitarium shall fail at any time during said 
period to maintain a branch Sanitarium on said 
premises, or (b) if at any time during said period 



the finances of the Sanitarium shall become in such 
conditions as to justify making an agreement for the 
reimbursement of the Corporate Fund for the use 
of said property in the opinion of the City Comp- 
troller and the Sanitarium shall fail or refuse to make 
such an agreement for the reimbursement of the 
Corporate Fund, or (c) the Sanitarium shall fail to 
maintain the buildings and equipment thereof on 
said premises in good order and repair, provided that

tained within three months and all work involved 
shall be completed within six months after the 
passage of an ordinance by the City Council; that 
plans in triplicate shall be approved by the board 
of appeals before a building permit is issued 
herein, and that all other ordinances of the city of 
Chicago shall be complied with; and that in grant- 
ing such permission the use permitted shall be 
deemed to be conforming in the same sense as 
though it were established prior to the time of the 
passage of the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, the board further finds that the 
premises are located in a 2d volume, apartment 
district, in a block which is zoned for commercial 
uses with the exception of the premises affected; 
that the proposed use will not injure the appro- 
priate use of neighboring property; that there is 
particular hardship in this case and that the varia- 
tion may be made consistently in harmony with the 
intent and purpose of the zoning regulations and 
would not be detrimental to the public welfare, 
safety or health, 

Resolved, that the board of appeals by virtue of 
the authority conferred upon it does hereby 
recommend that the City Council enact the follow- 
ing ordinance:
